Open the doors. Look down the edge of the body behind where the lamps are. You should see one phillips head screw and a small empty hole (above or below it, I can't remember which) Take out the screw and then pass a screwdriver through that other empty hole and give it a sharp tap. The lamp should fall out.

That's what works for me, not sure if it's the "right" way to do it.

if your on about the screen washers i had a pipe come off in the frost,this brought water in whenever i squirted them.mechanic wasnt best pleased as he said it was tighter than a mouses ear(not a hippopotamouse)to work behind the dash so i presume the pipes run internally.

All wrong guys, removing the grill or headlamps will not get you to the washer nozzles/pipes, vey hard to get to under the dash. So much so that I have given up for the time being and am living without them. Keeps the bums/junkies at the lights with thier squeegies in business Laughing Maybe Maximus' mechanic can shed some light on how he got to them.
